of representatives. and the answer to that question is really in a painting by grace mcdonnell, a 6-year-old sandy hook victim whose dad gave the president a piece of her artwork >> obama: i think about grace. i think about the life that she lived. and the life that lay ahead of her. and most of all, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. >> jennifer: for grace, this fight is worth waging. and for her this fight may even be worth losing in the short term anyway. because while the president might be able to squeak out an unsatisfying victory a small and ugly bill riddled with loopholes and signifying nothing, perhaps in this instance, the better course is to wage the big fight to stand strong over banning assault rifles. even when you know you're not going to get the votes in congress because it is a noble cause. because it is better to lose with grace than to win ugly. because every day the extremists froth about saddam hussein and king obama and impeachment over a rational ban on assault rifles. they make the case to most everyday americans th
concerns today that politics is getting in the way of the super storm sandy cleanup, but 60 billion in taxpayer relief, 60 billion goes straight to some labor unions and bypasses local businesses that could also use the work, but don't happen to be unionized. we'll talk about one of the builders having to fight for a piece of the pie in this tough economy. why are we requiring that these contracts go to union shops? shouldn't we be getting the cheapest deal we can with the taxpayers' money? we'll talk about it. justice is served after a disturbing attack at a train station is on surveillance. real concerns how long it took police, after the suspect. and lance armstrong came clean with oprah, or did he, and he knows exactly how to look at somebody and see if they tell the truth about something, he's going to look at lance armstrong and manti te'o. ♪ you're my favorite mistake ♪ ♪ you're my favorite mistake ♪ uo thine customers!

: this is the thing that is driving me craze. none of this would have stopped sandy hook. you know what would have stopped sandy hook? if we had much tougher gun control. oh he's not doing enough so it wouldn't have stopped sandy hook. great, let's do more. >> rubio is saying he's not doing things to attack the underlying problems that there are. he is he's talking about not just gun control but mental health and executives orders of putting todd jones at the head of the atf. >> i have to agree with michael here. you look at the proposals and it's very comprehensive. he does target a large variety of issues. aside from gun control and i like that. anyone who is reasonable and logical could not look at obama's proposals and say it goes too far. they are common sense. we should have more back round checks and get rid of the gun show loopholes. i don't understand why they would fight against that. >> cenk: because they represent the gun manufacturers and they want to make more money. there is more action from the republicans. >> yes, the representative from north carolina and in inconsequential membe
not prompt action -- at least presidential action like sandy hook has. will sandy hook also prompt action in congress? >> i think so. yes, it will. but first i have to say again, what a powerful statement. the poem that he wrote for this occasion, and i thought he and president obama got together ahead of time and talked about this togetherness, and all of us americans are in this together. and here is a young man, cuban american, openly gay man, that really said something too, plus the power of his words. but to sandy hook this was the slaughter of the innocents. and i think that's what really shocked us and shocked the president. these were little angels. the purest of the pure, and as the president said and i was at the white house when he announced his proposals. this is our number 1 responsibility as a people is to protect our children, and this is how we will be judged is what he said. and i believe this congress will act, maybe not everything we want them to do but we'll see some action not just talk on gun violence this year. >> jennifer: christine my guess is
attention this focus and this demand for action really was triggered -- prompted by what happened at sandy hook elementary school where 20 innocent first graders were mowed down. in ten minutes some of them shot as many as 11 times. if we're talking about saving kids' lives and you've got four kids who wrote to the president and said please do something in the wake of this, i think it was totally appropriate for the president. >> absolutely. >> bill: bring them on stage yesterday. >> that's what i think separates them from a lot of other kinds of -- >> bill: speaking of exploiting children, then you have the nra -- so the head of the nra, talking about the ad of course, talked about it yesterday here on the show. i want to play it one more time because david keen, the president of the nra is out today defending the ad again and saying oh, no, we weren't talking about the president's daughters when we made that ad. let's listen to it. see if you can believe this buffoon. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schoo
wrote him letters after sandy hook. >> these are some pretty smart letters from some pretty smart young people. julia said -- julia, where are you? there you go. "i'm not scared for my safety, i'm scared for others." >> reporter: rush limbaugh mocked that. >> the children are writing letters to the president, we don't want to die, we don't want to die. >> reporter: the president's proposals if passed by congress would ban assault weapons and high capacity magazine clips and require background checks on virtually every gun sale, even those between private individuals at gun shows. he called on his supporters to put pressure on members of congress. >> ask them what's more important. doing whatever it takes to get an a-grade from the gun lobby that funds their campaigns? or giving parents some peace of mind when they drop their child off for first grade. >> reporter: the president also announced 23 executive actions he can take without congress, including improving existing background checks and helping get security officers for schools that want them. even before the announcement, the nat
are the best equipped in the world that tom selleck has not had one word to say about what happened at sandy hook elementary so yes, it is time to question tom's humanity is there anything in tom's humanity that recoils at his blood drencheded organization usings president's daughters in their ugly round of propaganda. is that okay with tom? i don't believe it is. he seems like a descent guy. but now we are going to find out how brave he really is. we are doing to find out who he really is. does he have the courage to come forward and say as a father himself that what the nra did, what his organization did is unacceptable. he has two kids. they are both adults now. we can all be absolutely certain that if i included their names in what i'm saying here, if i linked tom's kids in anyway to tom's 14 years of work making sure that our mass murderers are so well equipped that tom would beyond outraged. and he would have a right to that pa rental out rage. if and only if he shares this country's outrage with what the blood drenched leaders of the nr are a have done with the president's daughters.

sandy, of tropical storm sandy. they wanted to defend their own territory in terms of politics, but i didn't see anything particularly conspiratorial in any of that. >> no, they're actually trying to save themselves. they've got a bunch of people from very safe districts, and john is right, it would be very hard for democrats to take back the house until after 2020 because all those districts are gerrymandered, and, you know, if you can't take back the house, you certainly can't annihilate the republicans. it was a kind of loopy expression, and i think if john was being honest, he'd say he wouldn't have advised the speaker to say it. >> is victimhood now a republican meme? now republicans are all victims too? i know the democrats are sometimes truly victims, but are you selling the fact, hey, we're getting beat up by these bullies. is this the new thing, complaining, crying? do you think it works politically? >> i think the president's speech on monday did a wonderful thing for republicans. it got them united and fired up. he said nothing that anybody in any red states would say he's
the horrific mass murder of children and faculty at sandy hook elementary in connecticut there were many pledges of thoughtful and thorough efforts to prevent such atrocities. supposedly, everything would be on the table, not just access to firearms by criminals or mentally deranged people, but the mental health care system shall the role of violence in hollywood television and video games. and it was also going to be an honest review of possible changes in the law that would be based on hard data, not just the political agenda of one side. well, so much for that. as many of us feared, there will be no executive orders or proposed legislation that might rile the president's hollywood pals. none of the legislation proposed so far is really about comprehensive mental health care reform. it's all about firing up the same old plans from the left, to pass new laws that will limit the freedoms of citizens who haven't broken any laws. emotional rational has been, as the president said this week, if there's even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there's even one life that can be sa
low arctic sea ice. we had hurricane sandy and the national climate assessment report says this, quote, summers are longer and hotter and periods of extreme heat last longer than any living american has ever experienced. winters are generally shorter and warmer. rain comes in heavier downpours though in many region there is are longer dry spells in between. obviously the news is not good. that's a combination of over 100 scientists that agree to that. that report is coming out soon. let's bring out an expert, michael brun. i take it you're going to one of the balances. >> i am, cenk, thank you for having me on the show. >> cenk: no problem. maybe you got dressed up for us, which would be awesome. you would be the first. all right, let's talk about the president's speech on climate change. let me give you one more clip, michael, and get you're assessment of this. >> obama: the path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. we can't cede to other nations the technology that willpower new jobs and n
in the cold and dark because of hurricane sandy. this government big wig was warm and cozy. the reason why? he took home an agency general radar. >> plus, this girl really is on fire. we will tell what major gig alicia keys gist scored. ♪ this girl is on fire. helped . i honestly loved smoking, and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. it put me at ease that you could smoke on the first week. [ male announcer ] some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a histor
at sandy hook or virginia tech, the gun show loophole had nothing to do with that. i know some are advocating for that. virginia has as good a gun background check system as during the committee. we have the third highest number of reports to the database, to disqualify people based on mental health and criminal quicks. we kind of think our system is working. we've had that debate. it's really do we want to -- as he posed to the public sale. that's the broader issue under the second amendment. i think it's good to have that discuss, but andrea, the question is not what makes you feel good, but what will actually work to be able to protect our kids. i have five kids. they've all gone through virginia public schools. let's find out what is actually going to keep them safe, and that's where our discussion is here in virginia. >> let's talk about immigration. that's another issue. i don't know if it came up during your meetings, house caucus meetings. marco raubo is up front with a plan that would have steps towards legalization. gegs workers that could get immigrants citizenship.
of hurricane sandy. many people left with just a structure around them, no heat, just the studs where the walls once were. like the home where nbc's katy tur is visiting tonight, staten island in new york. good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. outside the real-feel temperature is about 6 degrees. inside, where people are living, it's about 32 degrees. it got so cold in here last night, these water bottles on the wall actually froze. and this home has heat. >> up. >> reporter: scott and dee mcgrath's whole life has been moved into one small bedroom. >> this is my dining room -- >> living room. >> living room -- >> bedroom -- >> bedroom and computer room. everything all in one. >> reporter: thermostat set to 90, actually temperature 65. downstairs, though, it's a whole other ball game. >> as you can see, we have a lot of exposed walls. >> there's a lot of people living like this. just because we have heat and electric back on doesn't mean we're actually staying warm. >> 39. >> 39 degrees. >> reporter: the mcgraths have been living this way for three months. in november, they pleaded for
the gun control debate in this country was reignited after the tragic sandy hook school shooting and everybody no matter what side of the aisle you happen to be on. they unanimously agree we've got to keep our kids safe at school and infringing in the second amendment right. it's not the answer and they've put together a unique group of ways to outline to keep your children safe in the classroom and it's led by this man, former congressman asa hutchinson. good to see you. >> been a while. >> sean: it's been impeachment since we talked to you last. and was there anything proposed this week or the new york law, executive orders, the laws that the president is proposing, anything that will keep people safe that will keep this from happening again? >> if you're talking about the president's proposals on school safety, i'm glad that he acknowledged to have an armed presence in our school systems to keep the children safe, but the proposals were totally inadequate to accomplish that objective. you know, on the school safety side which i am looking at, you looked at funding for the cops
now. they have taxes raised and passed the sandy relief on a bipartisan vote and they will pass immigration reform and deal with the debt ceiling. he broke the republicans's arms on that. >> still got the votes. >> sandy relief who will disagree on that? >> a lot of of people. remember how chris christie was screaming? >> screaming at -- >> house republicans. >> right. >> what happens is up until now you had something called the hastert rule in the house. republicans stood together. that has been demolished in the last month. it's going to continue to be demolished when votes on immigration comes up and solving the sequestration money comes up and also on the budget. the real test for the president is whether he is going to go up against his own caucus to do things on medicare social security and a few other issues. >> we are looking at the president on a motorcade going down pennsylvania avenue. every time i look at the inaugural route, i can't help but go back to january 20th 1977 and jimmy carter breaking precedent and stepping out of the car and shaking h
the sandy hook tragedy. >> i started getting a lot of letters from kids. four of here today. brandt fritz, julia strokes, and taga good, and they're pretty representative of some of the messages that i got and these are some pretty smart letters from pretty smart young people. these are our kids. this is what they're thinking about. and so what we should be thinking about is our responsibility to care for them. and shield them from harm. >> i wonder if any of the kids wrote to the president and said don't take my daddy's gun. some say he exploited the children for political gain and why he was busy passing on gun control, the national rifle association made it clear they're not backing down in this political fight and released a scathing new ad. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards in their schools? mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but it's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their kid
or hurricane sandy? >> i mean, shame on him is what i say. because more than anything what he said is absolutely right in the sense there's disproportionate effects of gun violence in inner cities and across the border. if you want to go into communities that recognize the importance of having some sort of gun violence prevention, tough talk to those constituencies. otherwise, you're basically working out of -- without knowing exactly the repercussions that's happening in these communities. but let's talk a little bit about what's happening along the border, and the republican party's need and want to expand with the latino community as a voting bloc. along the border close to nine out of ten latinos regardless if they're republican or democrat believe we should have some sort of gun control legislation and that we need it quickly. why? because they're suffering the repercussions of right now anybody walking into -- walking in, buying a gun, not necessarily from a dealer but from a pift owner, and having no repercussions or no trail of where that gun went to. it's disgraceful that
days since hurricane sandy before the republican majority in the house was linked to do something to address the problem. 79 days where people can't flush their toilets. 79 days where people are living in the dark with candlelight and it took that long for the republicans to do anything to help all of those people. it is shock. they can't get anything done. >> john: those people live in the northeast and not in actual america. i think that's the rationale. >> i think the rationale is what it always is. the republicans don't want to do anything for anybody. there is a mean streak, too that you only see -- you only recognize when you're close up. these are people who went to kick you when you're down. >> john: like you so eloquently described republicans' plan seems to be do nothing. when you see you your g.o.p. colleagues do nothing now it is on gun control measures, what do you think the odds are when the next mass shooting happens god forbid, will they be blamed? will the g.o.p. once again bow to the nra pressure or is this time going to be slightly different? >> no. they will bo
to god. >>> and they have been out of their home since superstorm sandy destroyed it. how in the world was one long island couple's power bill $500 if nobody is home? >> that couple here to share their fight against the long island power authority, next. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally. if your a man with low testosterone, you should know that axiron is here. the only underarm treatment for low t. that's right, the one you apply to the underarm. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than 18. axiron can transfer to others through direct contact. women, especially those who are or who may become pregnant, and children should avoid contact where axiron is applied as unexpected signs of puberty in children or changes in body hair or increased acne in women may occur. report these signs and symptoms to your doctor if they occur. te
-- i ran into chris perry and sandy steer, which it is almost supreme court time. >> yeah. i'm really curious to know exactly what questions the supreme court will take up, but obama's speech was right in front of the supreme court justices. >> stephanie: yeah. >> so delivering this kind of message right in front of the supreme court, right in front of republican opposition. it's hard to crawl back from that. >> we know what clarence thomas will say he will point at scalia and say whatever he said. >> stephanie: he looked cute in that hat. but he has such a nice head of hair. >> it was weird. >> stephanie: being here matt we were saying when you walk by the supreme court you go wow. >> yeah. >> stephanie: anyway here is the president. >> obama: our journey is complete, until our wives mothers and daughters can earn a living equal to their male partners. our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated equal under the law. if we are truly created equal then surely the love we commit to one another is equal as well. no citizen shou
. >> certainly it was a tragedy, benghazi was a tragedy but when you put her up there with 9/11 and sandy hook, and aurora and dozens of others that is just hyperbole, and that's what he is known for. i like rand but he just gets a little whacky sometimes. >> stephanie: yeah a little whack-a doodle. john mccain said that chris stevens spoke to him directly about needing more security. did he do something? pass on the information? or keep it to himself? did he bring the information to the state department? that was an odd moment. right? excuse me you are the head of the armed services committee. >> of course. and she raised that point in a very productive way. so clearly this was not anything that was on any member's radar screen to appoint d which they actually took action in any way. >> stephanie: right. >> so the whole scenario is just an embarrassment, i think. and fortunately i think hilary embarrassed them even more yesterday. >> stephanie: yeah absolutely. i was hoping she would open with i got your freakin' benghazi flu right here. but she is classier than i am. >> yeah. th
-- he didn't say sandy. that's what he was talking about >> people laughed in my section when he said people deny the science. >> there is a noticeable shift in the way he communicates since the election, i think. not just in this speech but in the way he talked about gun control last week. it is a very -- i mean he has really taken this mandate we have a debate over whether or not the president has a mandate. he knows the people are behind him. he knows that the people realize that whatever he wants to get done is met with so much obstructionism that he's -- he's on top here. he can say where he wants to go and the people are with him. >> progressives have been saying for a long time, regardless of what he says, there is still going to be op sition. they're still going to view him as a socialist. he satisfies no one on the opposition to say let's all hold hands. they'll still find a problem with that sentiment. >> bill: yeah, right. i thought was really remarkable when he stood up and said again linking it to the constitution, linking it to our responsibilities to make sure that that
